Battle of the Books 2017-10-17T10:33:23+00:00

Bstack of booksattle of the Books is an annual event hosted by the Newport News Public Library System in collaboration with the Williamsburg Regional Library. Area school teams compete by answering questions on books they have read.

Now is the time for your student to be reading the books selected for this year’s battle.  The books chosen for this year may be found in the library here at school, the public library, or you may already have some of these titles at home. You may want to take a moment to discuss these books with your student.

St. Andrew’s has won Battle of the Books City Champs 6 out of the past 8 years! We are hoping for a repeat this year!

Happy Reading!
